It’s funny how things turn out. My mandate in 2011 was to play, and report on, a new golf course community every week. To that end I did review some 30 different courses along with their housing options ( see history of previous blogs). But then, along came an amazing membership offer from The Founders Club, which I simply could not resist. Playing good, semi private ( or even some public ) courses is fun, but it just can’t compare to the full, private club experience. Better course conditions, better opportunities to meet people, and off course social activities you can experience if you are so inclined. So far, I have truly enjoyed The Founders Club membership.

     And it’s not too late for this opportunity. Memberships that were $47,500 remain available for only $15,000 for a limited time. This is a traditional Scottish Links design with moss-covered centuries-old oaks, pines and palm trees in a lush setting. The Clubhouse is spectacular with an outside dining area second to none. To illustrate the social aspect, recent clubhouse events included the Chef’s table Dinner, a casual Dinner & Trivia Night, a Couples Cooking Class and Brunch with Santa.

     Last week I took three clients out to the member-guest day ( which we won ! ) and all three were remarkably impressed with the course and its conditioning, along with the professional treatment by all club and restaurant staff.

     And let’s not forget the real estate options. This remains one of the newest, high end gated golf course communities in the County. Homes on estate size lots can still be had for well under the million$ mark. New construction is currently available. Call or e-mail me for specific listings. Happy holidays.
